March 20, 2014 (Independence, IA) – The Independence Community School District received the official resignation of girls’ basketball coach Rod Conrad on Wednesday, March 19th.
Head Coach Rod Conrad submitted a letter to Activities Director Rob Arnold expressing his desire to resign on Friday, March 14th. Conrad spent some time reconsidering his resignation, but after several discussions and meetings with the district administration he ultimately decided it was his time to leave. “The administration has been excellent to work with and have been very understanding of my situation”, said Rod Conrad. “I’ll continue to be involved with coaching basketball to some extent.”
The administration is already taking action to further tighten up and improve the parent-coach protocol. In the past year, the administration has implemented a manual outlining the expectations of parents of our athletes in the district. “The administration continues to tighten its protocol for making sure parental complaints are appropriately communicated and handled”, said Superintendent Peterson.
The search for a new head coach will begin immediately.
